    How to organise your garden shed with shelving and racking

    Has your shed become a hazardous dump for clutter? Do you throw in your summer gear, lock the door, and forget about it until June? If so, it's time to clear it out and get organised with some garden shed shelving and racking.

    Now, we're not saying your shed needs to look as good as your living room. It's not somewhere you need to start exercising your interior design skills. It is, though, a space that can come in handy for lots of things and should be kept neat and tidy.

    In the UK, 32% of people admit that their shed is so messy that they can't even get through the door. Looking at that statistic, we'd imagine the overall number of cluttered sheds is pretty high.

    So, we thought we'd write a quick guide on how to transform shed into a practical and organised space to suit your needs. We decided to break it down into six simple steps for you to follow:

    • Think

    How to declutter your garage space with shelving and racking

    When you think of the garage, you probably think of a neatly organised hub of all things DIY. But let's face it, that's probably not the case. Many of us end up turning our garages into a makeshift tip that you enter at your own risk. If this is you, then its time to think about de-cluttering, and at G-Rack, we have a fantastic range of garage storage solutions to get you started.

    Tidying the garage is likely to be at the bottom of your to-do list, alongside organising your desktop and sorting your inbox. But don't worry, you're not alone.

    In the UK, 39% of drivers say they can no longer fit their car in the garage due to mess. A RAC study showed that 4.6 million of Britain's 10.6 million garages are used solely for storing clutter.

    So, if you're within the 50% of UK homeowners who admit that the garage is the most dis-organised area of the house, you might want to check out G-Rack's guide to de-cluttering the garage.
